The Eagles have confirmed to Action News that team owners Jeffrey and Christina Lurie are getting a divorce.

The billionaire power couple announced the split in a letter to employees today, writing that they would "remain close friends and continue to work together as partners."

The pair met in the early 1980's.

They've been married for 20 years.

No reason was given for the decision, which they said was "not reached easily, but with mutual respect."
